From Storm Team 5…
WE WILL HAVE A COLD FRONT MOVE IN LATER TONIGHT AND BEGIN TO BRING A DROP IN TEMPERATURES FOR TONIGHT — AS WE FALL BACK INTO THE LOW/MID TEENS — COLDER WEATHER WITH INCREASING CLOUDS FOR WEDNESDAY IS EXPECTED –HIGHS IN THE LOWER 20S.
Mostly clear skies are in the forecast for tonight as much colder air builds back into the region. Winds relax through the evening. Lows drop into the low to mid teens by daybreak Wednesday.
Clouds are to be on the increase tomorrow but conditions remain dry. The mercury only makes it into the lower half of the 20’s. Though a few flurries are possible later tomorrow evening, we wait until Thursday morning for periods of snow to develop.
Snow will likely materialize heaviest at some point Thursday afternoon and early evening before tending to wane later Thursday evening into Friday morning. The prospect for a few inches, perhaps several inches, remains on the table. Snow showers will continue to be possible on Friday as well. Highs top out close to 30 degrees both Thursday and Friday.
Partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies can be expected on Saturday as colder air builds into Northeast Wisconsin. Temps will be at their max during the morning in the 20’s before falling into the teens during the afternoon.
A mix of sun & clouds is anticipated for Christmas Eve Sunday along with frigid numbers in the lower teens for highs. Another arctic front blasts through early Christmas Day Monday bringing a chance for flurries and snow showers. Brutal cold air will be in place for most of Christmas Day with temperatures not far from zero.
Well below zero temps are likely by Tuesday morning and Tuesday afternoon may fail to see readings climb above zero underneath a mix of sun & clouds.
